SS collection displayed

Article about: Moved into the new digs in June and I've have been slowly working on the office/war room. Here are a few photos of the main display which is mostly a SS focus. I've still got odds and ends o

    A very tasteful display! Although with a collection like that, you don't even notice the way it is displayed! You have a superb collection.

    Cheers, Pat

    Best regards, Patrick

    Beautiful tasteful display. Surely quality over quantity pays off!

    As a fellow collector of the SS, i congratulate you on that remarkable display. Well done. I am especially digging the SS NCO sword and SS portepee.

    Thanks for the tip, Ralph. I'm not thrilled with the LED wiring exposed as it is. Running it down the corners, as you suggest, sounds better.
    I run the wires along the metal glass supports to the corner of the cabinet and join each shelf's wire to the next until all 4 are cable tied together then run the lot through a hole drilled in the bottom of the cabinet then nicely out of sight along the floor to the power point.

    Good question IronCross. How do you ever keep dust out of those! It would cost a fortune to have them hermetically sealed. and then we couldn't handle our long sought treasures

    Excellent displays, very well done

    I'm also a detolf fan, and I'm too lazy to clean my displays .

    I went to the hardware store for some window weatherstripping for my detolf.
    The thickest solid weatherstripping I could find that would close the gap, however on the hinge side I used a hollow compressible D-shaped weatherstrip, otherwise there would be issues with the door closing.

    It's a bit of a hassle to install, because you have to run the weatherstrip exactly alongside the door, and the potruding hinges without putting pressure on them, otherwise the door won't close or stay closed.

    The result: 100% dust proof, but the downside is that the weatherstripping obstructs the view somewhat in the corners.

    On a side note, I've also seen people use foam type weatherstripping, which may work ever better...
